There is one thing worse than an Enbloc ----- and that is an Enbloc done badly. Since the majority have the necessary mandate to sell, then they owe it to all SPs to make a success of it. Minority SPs can only watch and wait, if they sell then lets pray it's at a price we can move on with, if they don't sell, then we are happy to stay for a few more years.

  1. Reality - with the new property ruling, is it more feasible for a enbloc sales of 1.2 to 1.4 million. Do not think anytime now TC can get above one million mark in the open market,The new ruling will even lower the property market price it be more affordable to get a replacement unit.

  2. Dream on.
    1.2 million will only cause you to downgrade.
    The news now:
    Prices has gone up tremendously over the past year, any drop in prices will on be marginal and the government's purpose is clear, it is to stabilize the market, not bring it down.
    En-bloc is a long process, it is highly possible that when you get your money, property in land scarce Singapore will creep up again!

  3. Government rules can change overnight.
    If the market goes belly-up, then they will change things again. The DC rate chages every 6 monhs - it either goes up or down. No one can predict what things will be like in 3 years - and it's no reason to depress our reserve price, things can change and escalate suddenly and we will be caught out again

    Never beleve the naysayers who predict that prices will fall - ALWAYS plan for the worst case scenario - that prices will continue to rise.
